Comment: The story is a typical adaptation. It has a lot of text, but a minor dialogue. Story is okay, but does not containg the magic touch. Corben makes his art more interesting by adding silhuettos on several pages, specially on pg 2 and 6, which has white instead of black silhuetto. Also Corben breaks interestingly the traditional frame forms; every single frames are different size and mostly there's a one whole or almost page size frame.
